show and the g.o.p. said they would go forward seeking this extension of the increase on the debt ceiling. the president insisted he would not negotiate the debt ceiling again. the republican response is to give themselves more time before raising it. the partisan posturing, the positioning, that will yield to partisanning battling anew. >>neil: thank you. now, something that is fascinating. four years ago and again here, they get out of the their cars, the president and the vice president, they wave to the crowd, keep in mind they are feet away from the reviewing stand. they get back in the car. then to the reviewing stand and i am sure there is logic and reason and it has to do with the timing of it all but they are feet away. i could touch them. he will take the rest of the way by car. that is the vice president and the president. they will soon be in the reviewing stand. the former chairman of ubs america, a very, very important influential financial player for the obamas and kitchen cabinet type advisors on all things business community. very good to see you. thank you for co
the national debt ceiling. republican leaders announced today the extension lets the government continue borrowing money until may 19. the current debt ceiling-- $16.4 trillion-- could be reached as early as mid-february. the house bill does not specify a new dollar amount. it does mandate that congress approve budgets, or lawmakers won't be paid. major league baseball lost two hall of famers over the weekend. st. louis cardinals great stan musial-- "stan the man"-- died saturday at his home just outside the city. he played 22 years, helping the cards win three world series titles in the 1940's. he was widely regarded as one of game's greatest hitters ever. stan musial was 92 years old. also saturday, former baltimore orioles manager earl weaver passed away, during a caribbean cruise. weaver won the world series in 1970, and took his teams to three others. along the way, he gained fame for his fiery, in-your-face confrontations with umpires. he was ejected from games 91 times over 17 seasons. earl weaver was 82 years old. >> brown: finally tonight, a closing reflection on the inauguratio
with a new strategy which is basically to punt on the debt ceiling. not make the fight about the debt ceiling, pass the three-month extension into april and, instead, make their stand either on march 1, when the automatic sequestration, $100 billion in spending cuts takes effect or march 27 when the government runs out of money. good idea? >> i think so, i think the debt ceiling struggle is probably a loser. the public has been convinced i think to some extent by what amounts to false information, that flows out of the white house and other quarters and throughout too much of the media, that the failure to raise the debt limit would mean an automatic default on international debt which is not true, but, nonetheless, scary. and, i think they didn't want to face that. they didn't do well the last time and have chosen a strategy to use this to get the senate, indirectly to pass a budget, which would be kind of historic, sips it has not happened in several years. and would at least shift the focus away from themselves and as for fighting on the continuing resolution to keep the government only or
of extension of the debt ceiling. >> and to hold their own pay hostage. we won't pay ourselves. >> even though i think the debt plays better outside and holds more leverage outside the beltway. that's a very positive start, but, again, the president has so far ostensibly been willing to go along with some entitlement cuts, delayed eligibility age, social security diet cola as we call it, and never had to formally walk up to the table on that and it's going to be -- >> let me jump in because i want to get to what i see as one -- not that my opinion particularly matters here. one of the critical imperatives of this second term is to enhance prosperity and economic growth. right now there are more people in poverty than there were four years ago. there are about 12 million more people receiving food stamps than four years ago. growth is back. it was down in the first quarter of his term. it is up now, but it's not fast. what does the president need to do, what can he do to get the economy growing? >> well, look, in the near term what he needs to do, and i'm not sure politically -- forget about th
, martha, where they're cot delling together what could be a three-month extension of the debt ceiling to try to hammer out more spending cuts and coupled with chuck schumer, the man in charge of today's big inaugural event, more tax hikes. a lot of bruising to come as far as they settle this but they are a long way from settling it. martha: neil, that raises a bigger question. you look at the second term of fdr who dealt with obviously severe economic distress in this country. what happened was they relapsed. there is lot of concern if we do continue to raise taxes and small business owners who the president said are one of his priorities in the second term, but if their sense is their taxes are going higher, they will continue to pull in and get smaller and leaner and not hire i would imagine. so the big question is, where is the whole economy going to head if taxes are increased in other ways in this country? >> well you know the president spoke to quickly come back at the notion, if wall street is worried about this and companies are worried about this, investors are worried about
not gone completely shut down, so we may get at three month extension of the debt ceiling. extending that three months republicans are asking that congress pass a budget to be taken political aim at the u.s. senate because in the u.s. senate they have not passed a budget in a few years. with that they get democrats on the record and the senate with a budget which is something that had been hoping to do politically. they don't have any spending cuts as part of this. another part of this is that congress will get paid if they don't pass a budget. is knows that argument. there will be having budget fights every few months. >> something to look for too. thank you. melissa: just attending the inauguration this morning. lori: that's right. let's bring in lou dobbs listen to that speech this morning. >> the leader of this country for the previous four years. the welcome tone in many respects. in other respects it was confusing and confounding. suggesting that somehow -- he talked about one thing in particular, talking about self executing troops. we don't have any of those. there were momen
and extension and that debt ceiling for another three months. that will make it presumably to may 19. that is going three months longer than we had originally thought. more time, they argue, to get their spending cuts in order and the president to do the same. they are pushing for the extension right now. the dollar amount would probably be whatever you consider, one quarter of $1.3 trillion. to keep the government operating. as everyone leaves the presidential podium and makes their way to this congressional luncheon, the other that is said to hold a major event, part of this pageantry for most republicans and democrats. the first all all branch. they will be keeping with the day to keep the president on board and themselves on board. they will give themselves a little bit of breathing room. i am coming to you live from what we'll be right now the presidential parade reviewing stand. it is just right outside the white house. i mean is where you will have the president and their vice president families. it was a lot colder than it was a four years ago. i am holding up okay. the diffe
an extension as bob reported on the debt ceiling maybe for a couple of months but notice how the republicans have placed a lot of contingencies on. that well unless you pass the budget by april we'll cut everybody's pay so we're going to have a series of cascading fiscal cliff-esque budget deadlines over the next several months and that really is the biggest threat to president obama's agenda. the things he talked about today whether it was on climate change immigration reform, gun safety. it's hard to do those things when you have as john pointed out leftovers from the first term. >> pelley: unity on monday, real politics on tuesday. norah and john, thank you very much. cbs news live coverage of the second inauguration of president obama will continue after these words. sometimes life can be well, a little uncomfortable. but when it's hard or hurts to go to the bathroom, there's dulcolax stool softener. dulcolax stool softener doesn't make you go, it just makes it easier to go. dulcolax stool softener. make yourself comfortable. ♪ i dare you to dare me this winter? i've got a dare. ♪ re
. that will give another three months and the extension of the debt limit. weird is that position? why delay that for three months? where does that put them in march and april? >> this is an acknowledgement that they have lost the debt ceiling essentially as a leveraged tool they have been using it as as the past couple of years. this was the main lever to pressure president obama to get spending cuts. when we saw congress' approval ratings plummet was at the time republicans were successful in doing this back in 2011 and they had a hard time recovering since then. i think this is an acknowledgement essentially they will no longer be able to use this. maybe they can use the sequestered and spending bills it also gives the republican party some time to recuperate from the election, and from the bloody fiscal cliff battle where they will acknowledge they came out the losers on that deal, and to try and just picked off some small fights on spending cuts such that they can rebuild the credibility and brand with the american people. i might mention they just came out of a retreat where they were
